The 1990s were Akshay Kumar’s time to shine indeed. The decade saw the actor’s emergence as a ‘Khiladi’ to look out for in Bollywood. The actor is getting a chance to relive some of the glory of his Khiladi days in his upcoming release, Selfiee. The makers unveiled the music video for the song Main Khiladi, a track which gives a glammed up makeover to Akshay’s 1994 hit song Main Khiladi Tu Anari.

The music video of the song is as vibrant as ever, as we see Akshay, and his co-stars Emraan Hashmi, Nushrat Bharuccha and Diana Penty shaking their legs to the beat of the song, which gives the retro classic a spirited twist. The four can be seen decked in bedazzled outfits, looking as glamorous as ever, setting the dance floor on fire.

Check out the song below:


The original song was sung by Abhijeet Bhattacharya, Udit Narayan and Anu Malik, and the former two returned to sing the latest track. The original track was composed by Anu Malik, and Tanishk Bagchi recreated the same for the upcoming film. The original song saw Akshay share the screen with Saif Ali Khan. The song was the title track of the duo’s film Main Khiladi Tu Anari.

The upcoming film is the Hindi remake of the hit 2019 Malayalam film, Driving Licence, directed by Jean Paul Lal, which saw Prithviraj Sukumaran and Suraj Venjaramoodu in lead roles. Selfiee will see Akshay portray the role of Prithviraj’s character, while Emraan will play the character of Suraj. Prithviraj is also a producer of the Hindi remake.
